Mortgage loans 100% are increasing 

Banking back to its old ways. Or, at least, to old habits before the crisis, when the volume of credit extended by more than 100% of home value soared. Now it is not reached, much less to those levels, but the trend is clear. A recent analysis of Studies of BBVA estimates that loans with an LTV ( ‘Loan-to-Value’) greater than 100% are increasing. To the extent that they have spent 2% of the total granted in 2012 to 5% in 2015.

Currently financial institutions are providing significant loans to citizens, so if you do not have the full budget, banks may help

BBVA Research explained by a “reduction in the valuations of appraisers,” but also “could play” a minor role the development of new operations. That is, the new mortgage. Most worrying, however, is that the bad loans in such loans reached 27% of the total in 2015, well above the 12% registered in 2012.


A report from the Bank of Spain made in the hardest years of the crisis, in 2010, estimated that nearly 85% of the total volume of mortgage risk stood at LTV below 80%; 12.6% had LTV between 80% and 100% and approximately 3.3% of risk mortgage-backed securities had a LTV above 100%. That means that now the risk of financial institutions that most delinquent credit is greater than then.

It has excellent tourist destinations

The best places for travelers are undoubtedly in Ajo, Cantabria:

Faro de Ajo: In 1907 the lighthouse was projected as one of the most important of the Cantabrian, similar to the lighthouse of Cabo Mayor. It is planned to build a tower 18 meters high, with a rectangular two-storey house where they could live up to 6 fareros, and separate machines. However, when in 1914 the lighthouse of Cabo Mayor is electrified, given its greater power, the project is canceled on the grounds that it is no longer necessary. From City of Bareyo, which owns Ajo, the emphasis on their suitability and after three shipwrecks in the area of ​​the lighthouse project is approved again in 1921, starting construction in 1928.

In August 1930 the lighthouse was inaugurated, being the newest of Cantabria, more modest than in the original idea, because even the house happens to have one floor. In 1980 the engineer Fernando Rodriguez Perez projects a new circular tower, made of concrete, leaving the focal plane to 10.73 meters above the ground and 71 meters above sea level.

Acantilados de Ajo: Right next to the beach Ajo some stunning and striking cliffs stretch. Perfect for spending a day relaxing, sunbathing, reading or just enjoy the scenery without getting sand. The bravest even come close to the waves, but you must be careful, because in that area the sea breaks forward.

The cliffs in the area are also very famous, people visit it to enjoy nature and a pleasant day

Cuberris Beach: beach Cuberris is located in the Cantabrian town of Ajo. The beach is not particularly large, has about 300 meters, you can say it is a sort of cove.

The beach has all necessary access for the disabled and also offers rescue service during the summer.

Notably, being surrounded by cliffs is a beach that is protected from the wind. It is also highly recommended to go with kids especially if the tide is low, since pools where kids can have a good time are formed.

At low tide we can find a nice sand flanked by mountains and rocks on either side. Perfect for parents to rest a little while children jump in the pools and build sand castles.

Surf lovers are also in luck because just entering the ‘module-school’ surf Ajo is. A beautiful place to practice a sport that is increasingly fashionable.

Mirador del Alto de Ajo: In the CA-141 road between Argoños and Pontejos, we will find a beautiful gazebo next to the road, at kilometer 23. From there you can see the whole coast, because the height is enough like to see part of Ajo and Galizano.

Even you may get to see a little beach and the endless Cantabrian mountains.

Cabo de Ajo: is the northernmost coast of Cantabria out and one of the roughest.

It is located in the municipality of Bareyo, receiving the name of the capital thereof, Ajo. The cape is part of a Special Protection Area.

Due to its geographical position at the northernmost point of the mountain, he can see the bay of Santander west, the Ria de Castellanos east and south the Cantabrian mountain range. In Cape Ajo is Ajo lighthouse whose beam of light reaches 17 nautical miles.

We also want to emphasize that the beaches of the town are beautiful and whose terrain is rugged, are Special Protection Area and an ideal place to contemplate the landscape of a region that offers nature, adventure tourism, heritage and tradition. The mountain architecture Monumental Ajo creates a very attractive environment in northern Cantabria.

Among the activities that can be performed in the area include water sports, with prominence of surfing on the beaches of Cuberris and Antuerta. There is also a wide choice for sports on land and walking and hiking, riding and quads.

Its roads are among the best in the country

about 6 years ago, the president of Cantabria, Miguel Angel Revilla, inaugurated the third phase of the development works crossing Ajo, a work that marks a “before and after” in the town, with which the regional government continued its commitment to the road network which has made the Cantabrian roads in “the envy of Spain”.

Cantabrian Government recently announced it would invest 1.4 million euros in Guemes Ajo-road. As has been said, it is a much needed road, and for which compensation is one of the most pressing within the Autonomic Road Network.

This is an important project because we are talking about an investment of 1,400,000 euros to 2,200 kilometers. The project envisages substantial improvement in one of the routes of access to the most important coast in the area. With this work, the platform will reach 5.50 meters wide, and improving the intersection with the CA-447, the longitudinal and transverse drainage, pavement strengthening and horizontal signage, vertical, markings and systems containment vehicles.

Wide and imposing gastronomy

Undoubtedly the Spanish cuisine is one of the best, not only in Europe but throughout the world, and in this case Cantabria not escape that, because it provides a wide and impressive variety of dishes, among which we highlight:

Pies, kebabs, cooked chickpeas, cooked cabbage and beans, recognized grills meat, wild boar, roe deer, deer and ox. The popularity of livestock in the region and favorable weather for cattle breeding conditions allowed the European Union approved meat Cantabria as a protected designation for certain beef from the area races. The dishes made with fish and seafood, and cheeses of Cantabria, drinks and desserts are also one of the most recognized throughout the country and that make tourists and investors wishing to return and even stay there to live forever .

Last but not least we want to emphasize that its average annual temperature of 14 degrees Celsius is another reason that make Cantabria a spectacular area, especially for real estate investments, which are expected to keep rising in the remainder of the year.
